Description

A classic masterpiece of British humor since its first publication in 1889. The funny boating trip of three men - Jerome and his two friends Harris and George and their dog Montmorency - along the River Thames in Oxford, crossing the absurdities and traditions of late XIX century England. One hot June day, three friends decide there is nothing they would like to do more than to get away from London. A boating holiday with lots of fresh air and exercise would be just the very thing, or so their doctors tell them. So, after debating the merits of hotel or camp beds and what to pack, they set off on their voyage - a trip up the Thames from Henley to Oxford - but very quickly find themselves ill-equipped for the trials of riverbank life.show more
